If you're reading this review wondering 'should I book / shouldn't I' - well don't waste any more time thinking - BOOK! The rooms are stunning - not on the beach but hidden in the forest area about 500m from the beach. The room design is very impressive and the outside shower with the forest trees above was spectacular! There is also a stunning lounge with a day bed covered with a mosquito net for those lazy afternoons with a book.
The sea isnt the crystal blue that you'll find in Samui or Phi Phi but the view from the huge rim flow hotel pool on the waters edge is out of this world! The service was top notch and although the staff didnt understand English too well they were most helpful and eager to please.
The island is very unassuming and there are no resorts or bars within walking distance. There are actually no real 'bars' on the island. There are a handful of other resorts but nothing like this one. Take the Island Tour and learn more about the local culture and industry...very interesting.
Don't think any longer - book here! We loved it!!
Thank you Koh Yao Yai for a fabulous, relaxing 4 nights at the end of our 3 week trip.
